When fans think of Star Wars, their minds fill with images of ships zooming about the stars, unrestrained by the limits of current technology. It is these ships that allow the denizens of the galaxy to effortlessly cross the unimaginable gulfs of the void, from beyond the rim all the way to the galactic core, in as much or as little time as the plot requires.

Whether the ships are brought to cinematic life as physical models (small or large), as CGI, or even matte paintings, what remains constant is the amazing attention to detail and the powerfully original aesthetic of their looks. When Star Wars seized the imaginations of an entire generation in 1977, the impact of these breathtakingly original vessels was incalculable and cast a massive shadow over many of the sci-fi films that followed – be honest, the Colonial Vipers in Battlestar Galactica owe more than a little to X-Wings.
